Lake George is a beautiful setting in the Adirondack Mountains. It has a very old history for a new world settlement dating back to the before the French and Indian war. French missionaries settled the area in the 1600’s. There is however no evidence remaining of French culture in the area.
This is probably due to the fact that the English garrison at at Fort William Henry was sieged and eventually everyone massacred during the French-Indian War. Although the British eventually won this pre-revolutionary struggle, French culture was largely driven out of New York State. The Fort has been restored and is now a Museum and next to the Museum is the Fort William Henry Inn which is a popular vacation destination. Every day young pipers welcome tourists and cannon-fire greets the day.
